This morning LACMA received a security threat. LAPD is on campus investigating the threat and working with our Security team. The safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is our primary concern. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to close the campus today and cancel all programming. ...

Prudent decision. Thank you LACMA for showing utmost care for your Patrons. Safety first.

Forever families wanted! Meet some of the available puppies from Labs and More!

The puppies pictured here are our single pups, pairs of pups, or remaining puppies from larger litters. If you asked them, they'd say we saved the best for last! These puppies range in age from 9 weeks to 4 months. Like all puppies they are looking for families who understand the time and commitment needed to raise, train, socialize, and exercise a young pup. Adopting a puppy isn't the right fit for every family, but it can be a very rewarding experience if you have the time and energy to give a young pup what they need. If you are interested in adopting through Labs and More, the first step in being approved to adopt is applying online at www.labsandmore.org. Our dogs are located in Southern California. Please share to help these puppies find their forever homes! #savedthebestforlast ...

A late-night collection highlight: The Clouded Moon,
John Whitehead, Scotland, circa 1923, Gelatin silver print

On May 2, 2018 Gordafarid, the first female Naqqal (or Iranian epic storyteller) presented tales behind some of the art in the exhibition "In the Field of Empty Days: The Intersection of Past and Present in Iranian Art." On view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art May 6 – September 9, 2018.

In this video, Gordafarid presents The Story of Gurdafarid and Suhrab.

Gurdafarid is the only female warrior in the Iranian national epic the Shahnama or “Book of Kings,” completed by the Persian poet Firdausi in 1010 A.D. Gurdafarid is best known for her martial role in the battle against Suhrab, another legendary hero, from the rival land of Turan. To defend Iran against a Turanian raid, Gurdafarid disguises herself as a male warrior and bravely faces the entire enemy army. Engaged in single combat with Suhrab, he pulls off her helmet revealing her true nature. Suhrab promptly falls in love with Gurdafarid, who knows she can only succeed against her more powerful adversary through cunning. She eventually escapes to her fortress and from atop its high walls she mocks Suhrab and strangely enough foretells his doom.

Excerpt from the tale:

A woman like some valiant cavalier was she and ever famous in fight.
Her name was Gurdafarid, and none as yet had seen her match.
She armed, concealed her tresses underneath her mail…
And came down, like a lion from the hold with girded waist upon a wind-foot steed.
She sped like dust and cried in thunder-tones: “What are these troops and who commandeth them? What lusty Crocodile is there among you to match himself with me in single combat?”…
“He pressed upon her with loud cries, jostled her, and snatched her helm.
Her hair escaped, her face shone like the sun.
He said: “It is a girl: her head of hair is worthy of a crown. If such a girl.” ...

Forever families wanted! Meet the Flapper Pups!

Eight weeks old and now ready to find their forever families, the Flapper Pups are adorable shepherd mixes. Their 45-lb. momma Flapper did a great job raising these puppies in an experienced foster home.

The first step in being approved to adopt is applying online at www.labsandmore.org.

Processing time for applications takes around 7 days. You will be contacted to submit photos of your home and yard, a copy of your lease agreement if you rent, and to complete a phone interview.

LAX

Today, students from Inglewood's Crozier Middle School got up close and personal with LAX's new robot, "Star." Prior to their visit, students toured the airfield, met with airport officials and had the opportunity to submit name ideas for the robot. Three winners were chosen and all of the winners included "Star" as part of their submissions.

Star will move into the Tom Bradley International Terminal in June. She will help guests travel through the terminal with wayfinding, suggest restaurant options and provide enhanced customer service. Guests can also interact with Star to obtain flight and gate information, dining and retail options, and Star will even provide information on food pricing and menus.

The robot is an information source, but she also can have fun. Yes, Star dances and she will take selfies and group pictures and then guests can share them on their social media platforms.

Guinevere (The Beautiful) is ready for her forever home. She is one special dog, rescued from the streets in terrible condition, nearly lost her life, she has now recovered 💯 and has become the sweetest dog ever! Guinevere is looking for a family as special as she is. She is not adventurous and prefers to comfort of her home over the thrill of the world. She is satisfied with a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood and few minutes of play in the backyard. She gives the best hugs and will lean into for them. Guinevere is house trained, doesn't need a crate, likes toys, loves her food and her people best of all. She is fostered with several dogs and cats and does well with them all.

Jessop is a sweet 4-5 year old Labrador who is the definition of a good boy! He does very well uncrated for 8 hours when we are at work. While we are at home he follows us around or snuggles with us on the couch. On walks, he walks nicely and likes to greet other doggies. We brought him to fiesta dog park this weekend and he loved getting to roam free but is still very easy to call back. He isn’t the running type (it’s ok I’m not either) but I think he would be great on hikes!

Meet the amazingly awesome Astrid pups Dragon and Hiccup, about three months old and 12+ pounds each. These two growing girls are medium energy on the puppy scale and have just put their puppy paws on the path to doghood. They are learning their names, leash skills, house manners, and spend the night in a shared crate without incident. You can read about moma Astrid on our website, and we expect these pups to be on the smaller side and just as amiable as mom. Dragon has a beautiful brindle coat and looks like she might be part whippet. Dragon and Hiccup are willing, wanting, and waiting to become your furever friends.

Joy is about six years old and had a difficult life before she came to labsandmore. Now she’s living the puppyhood that she was robbed of. It usually takes her a day or two to accept new canine friends, so she’s not a dog park kind of girl. She is 100% house and crate trained and very well behaved either by herself or with other dogs she has accepted as friends.

Nora is a self confident, playful pup. She hasn't met a squeak toy that she doesn't like! She loves a good game of chase and also a calming belly rub which concludes with plenty of doggie kisses. Are you ready to welcome this regal looking girl into your home?

Saffron is an 8 month old lab mix. She is a playful and sweet girl! She absolutely loves her toys as well as getting tons of belly rubs and pets and giving kisses in return. She does great in the car and for baths. She is a very quick learner and has already mastered sit and down. She is crate trained and sleeps quietly through the night in her crate. She is house trained as long as she gets potty breaks. Does good with other dogs - loves to play. She is good on a leash and wants to say “hi” to everyone.

Oh-My-God-Becky, Look at her Mutt! Her Mutt is so big!
I like big Mutts and I cannot lie. Do you like big Mutts too? Then you might want to meet Giant. We think he is about 5 years old and probably a shepherd/Leonberger mix. He is tall but lanky under all that fur. He weighs about 90 lbs but is almost 5 feet long from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.
He is house trained and can use the dog door to let himself outside. He will “sit” for treats and has learned to “wait” at the door before we go out for a walk. Because of his long legs he has a fast pace. When I am at a full run, he is only trotting. He is very playful with his best dog friend at home, but at the dog park he spends his time exploring the perimeter. Giant behaves when left home alone with another dog for company but he loves his family time. He can use a dog ramp to get into the car, or into a raised tub at the DIY dog wash, so you don’t have to worry about lifting him. He sleeps quietly through the night in his dog bed.

If you’re looking for small, adorable, energetic and silly, then 7 week old Dilbert is your guy! He will be ready for adoption this weekend. He is somewhat housetrained and playful, sleeps through the night in his large vinyl pen. Gets along well with our dog and cat, he likes know what they are up to and to be part of the pack! He’s a funny little fella! 😂

Little Miss Astrid is a small shepard/lab mix and a poster child for rescue dogs since she is such a good dog. We lovingly referred to as "Peaches" in our house because sweet and soft nature. She's cool and collected for a young girl and loves to chill on the couch with you and prefers to sleep by your side. She likes to politely sit patiently by your side waiting for love and attention. But she also has a spunky side and loves to play with toys and other dogs she knows and is gaining confidence at the dog park. She is generally submissive towards people and other dogs, but as a retired momma, she sometimes stands up to misbehaving puppies with some attitude. She is very food driven and adorably tap dances and spins in circles when the food bowl comes out. She would be a great apartment dog because of her small size but also because she rarely barks, she's totally house trained and is usually left alone all day with free reign of the house (with access to the backyard) and has shown no destructive tendencies.

Meet Girl Scout! Scout has been on medical hold for a dislocated hip, but she has fully recovered and ready to find her forever home! She is such a special, loving dog. Scout likes to hang with her people, but her favorite thing is the outdoors. She loves to just lie outside, so a yard is a must for her. She’d be perfect for an outdoorsy family that likes to walk and hike. Scout is house trained, crate trained, and knows her basic commands. She is friendly with the dogs in our house and likes to play with them, but it’s takes her a little while to warm up to them. So she won’t be a dog park kind of gal, but a house with a more mellow dog is fine. She also has a strong prey drive, so no small creatures (cats, bunnies, etc.) for her.

The Bahamas pups Clarence in the blue collar and Harbour in the pink collar... I'll let you guess who's the boy and who's the girl :-) these are two adorable fun-loving happy spirited puppies who also absolutely love to sit in your lap! They ride beautifully in the car without a sound and sleep through the night and do their business on newspapers 99% of the time.

Meet the remaining Flapper pups! These gorgeous pups are ready to find their forever homes. They are looking for a family that’s ready to handle the challenges of raising a young pup, but enjoy the benefits of having an adorable snuggle buddy. Starting from the top left, the order is Coco, Alice, Ivy, Plumette, Josie, and Zayna.

Meet Viveca aka Vive!! This sweet girl is 8 month of love. She has 2 favorite times of the day. Running around playing w her foster sister and chillin watching TV w her foster mom. She loves to give kisses and just wants to find her furever home so she can be their MVD!! She's around 35lbs of muscle. She loves to run and play w toys. She is crate and house trained.

Dora is an easy going puppy. She likes to play with her toys and with other dogs, but she is also content to lie on the dog bed and chew on a stick. She was given the nickname Love Dove by my grandson.

🌸Talavera🌸
Looking for an independent, semi-high maintenance, goofy (at times), social butterfly?
🌸Talavera🌸 is your girl!!
Her long, soft, brindle coat requires weekly brushing & 4-6 weeks grooming.
She loves attention, is dog & kid friendly (with proper intros).
Enjoys car rides & the beach.
Crates easily with little to no fuss, 4-5 hours/day & overnight.
House trained & uses doggy door.
Medium energy & smart. Definitely needs mental/physical stimulation (ie: food puzzles, trick training, daily walks, etc...)
Improving on leash skills & house manners.
She can be a bit of a handful, but worth it. She’s playful, affectionate and a fun girl!
🌸🌸🌸

Meet mama Flapper! This sweet girl is ready to separate from her puppies and start her new life with a loving family. Flapper is extremely affectionate and loves to just hang with her people and snuggle. She does great with our other dogs in the house and loves to play with them at the park. She is house trained and does great when left alone. She has a medium-energy level and a strong prey drive so no small creatures. Also, a house with no kids or older kids would be better for her because younger kids make her nervous.

We are fostering Baylor, who is recovering from distemper. This little man is a survivor! He's a fun medium size at around 30 lbs and shouldn't get too too much bigger. Baylor knows sit for treats, is crate trained, loves to play with other dogs, and rides well in the car. He's still learning how to walk on leash and is totally a mouthy puppy, but both will improve with time and training. Baylor will be available for adoption once he is medically cleared to be neutered. We love this little guy and can't wait to find him his forever home.

Ryan check this little doll out!
